St. Mary's Testimonials

"How do we begin to thank you all for the wonderful care and love you showed our dear Mama while she was at St. Mary's? You made her last years as happy as possible. You had her smiling her gorgeous smile every day and she enjoyed teasing and laughing with each of you. And many of you were even there at the end . . . such a blessing to us. You were more than just friends - you became family!"

"Thank you for referring my mom to receive music therapy as part of her care plan goals. Mom loves to sing, it's her favorite thing to do. My family grew up in a musical family, so thank you for carrying this delightful tradition on."

"Your work is hard to do, especially in these times. You not only do your job, you do the job of the family members (us) who can't be there with our loved ones. Please know you're appreciated."

"Felician Village/St. Mary's always goes above and beyond for their residents to make their day a bit more special for them."

"The care staff put a personal touch on providing dignified care."

"When my wife's condition deteriorated to a point I couldn't care for her at home, I knew St. Mary's was the best place for her."

"We wouldn't Mom anywhere else."

"The staff is not just a participant in her care, they have become friends to my mother, friends to my family and friends to me. They have my absolute trust."

"My mother is happy and safe. This is all about her and St. Mary's was her first choice. I thank you very much for taking such excellent care of her. I think she looks and feels better now than she has in years."

"I cannot tell you how much we appreciated all that St. Mary's did for our mother. Those final days we were amazed that there were people from all areas of the facility including cleaning staff coming in to say their 'good byes'. And I cannot tell you how much I appreciated the nursing staff. We did not totally realize how blessed we were as well as was our mother to have the St. Mary's family."

"I personally want to thank you for all the care and support of mom and of us, as we asked many questions and voiced our concerns. You helped us get through a very difficult time. Professional and kind! Be proud of the work you do!"

"We are very happy that mom is here, rather than any other nursing home in the area."

"Meeting the spiritual needs of the resident. That was a very important consideration when choosing a facility and we continue (resident, family and friends) to be impressed with the emphasis on meeting faith-based needs and giving attention to spiritual health and growth."


Choosing the right senior living facility is important and cost is certainly a key consideration.  However, because there are many items that factor into the final monthly cost, we would like to speak directly to you to explain all those items and choices.  At Felician Village there are no “move-in” or “buy-in” fees for new residents.
